How Will YOU Make Money Online?

Great question!

The reality is that there are many ways to make money online! The problem is that people often get distracted by the "latest and greatest" product or service and they are never able to build a successful (and revenue generating) business as a result.

Today I am going to run you through one of the most fundamental, yet powerful processes of generating revenue online.

It is a proven process, it is one that we use, and one that 100,000's of other Wealthy Affiliate members use. It is also the ultimate "making money" process that worked 5 years ago and it is going to work 5 years from now (and beyond). It is a process that will reveal as much opportunity in the massive online world as you are willing to work for!

It is called Affiliate Marketing.

But, just one thing before you get into the MONEY "stuff"...

The making money part of your business won't happen quite yet.

Before you earn money, you are going to first be focusing on creating your niche website (which will take place in the next two lessons) and are working to get traffic to your website. Without a website, without content, and without traffic, the MONEY part simply doesn't happen.

So don't look at this like a race. You will reach success and a great deal of it, but before you build your own personal SKYSCRAPER of a business, you must first have a solid FOUNDATION to build it on. That is going to be our first goal within the Getting Started training. Cool?

Alright, let's continue on! :)

Below is a video walk-through of today's lesson and the process of "How to Make Money Online - The Process Explained". Just click the PLAY button to watch it!

 


In the coming days you are going to be working through this process and by the end of this Level 1 training alone, you are going to have an awesome foundation in place that will lead you to much greater success.

Task #1: Understand the Make Money Process

There are MANY different ways that you can earn money online and many different ways in which you can build an entire business. The most lucrative and the one that we have been teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate for the past 14 years is Affiliate Marketing.

Below is a diagram outlining the process of making money through affiliate marketing.

There are now over 4 BILLION people online as of 2019 (YOUR audience) and these people are going to search engines, social media, or visiting websites for help all the time.

These people are looking for information, solutions to problems and to buy stuff.

That is where you are going to come in with your website and help these "audiences" by offering them information about what they are looking for. You will be "helping" these people, recommending products/services they can benefit from, and you earn affiliate commissions ($$) as a result.

There are over 550 MILLION products/services that you can promote as an affiliate marketer. The opportunity is incredible and it is only growing!

By Lesson 4 of this course you are going to have your very own "niche" website in place that you will use to connect with your chosen audience and make money with. You will have your very own slice of the internet opportunity.

Task #2: Create (Write Down) Your Financial Goals

You want to earn revenue right? That is great! In order to earn anything however, you need to have some goals in place.

In this task we want you to join in on a "money goals" discussion here at Wealthy Affiliate. You are going to be telling us what your goals are and going forward, we are going to be helping you achieve these very goals!

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic (ie, really excited) earning?

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?


PLEASE make 100% sure that you do not skip this step and you revisit this post regularly when you are in need of some motivation. I can absolutely assure you that if you work hard at this and you are persistent towards these goals, you will achieve them. But ultimately it is UP TO YOU!

JOIN DI$CU$ION: What Are Your "Money" Goals?

In addition to this, it would be wonderful if you commented on someone else's goals they have posted within this thread. Aim to comment on at least TWO people's goals. You likely can network with many other "like minded" people here at Wealthy Affiliate and this is a good way to get your networking efforts rolling. We are a friendly bunch here at WA!

If you have any questions about any aspect of the make money process, feel free to leave them in the comments below.

Awesome, off to the next lesson now where you will be "choosing your niche"!

For the posts how do you start out on a subject like these dolls there robotic. So should I jump rihht to.the point or im a little stuck. Im pretty good at writing or coming up with ideas I think . This is my hobby collecting reborns and later hope to have my own business after I learn the trade. I was thinkinf about addressing it cute or creepy? Or something reffering to your dream baby. I know these dolls bring alot of comfort to someone that is grieving cant have children like myself or someone that likes collecting. There also good for the elderly . I was thinking about making some for them and donating a couple just because I work in the medical field and its so sad seeing how lonley they are or get. Anyways thanks u guys for all the help. Thats one of the things I love about this program. Your all very kind and straight forward. Not like the other companys that keep saying its a secret and what not if u pay 200. Lol.

Hi I chose something that resonates with me most. I consult with answersocrates.com with you chose option and try find myself a subcategory of my niche try working with starting out.

When site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority, I could then scale A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

One niche, a website.
When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?
Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience.

There may be some history to robotic dolls. What about definitions? Are there several companies that provide them? If yes, what makes each one different? Does your About me page talk about how to got into this niche? If not write blog on it. You can also look at the manufactures site. It may give you an inspiration on how you want to start.

Those are some ideas.

ASmothers2 Premium
Thank u. Your so right. I should explain what makes them different. For my website I said something like dream baby I think. Is that stupid? I do have alot of research on these reborns. The site i picked is my favorite because thays the number one company in the world that makes these beautiful babies. Theu are pricie not going to lie. Im trying to think how woukd I list the companys like in a row going down fhe page? Also i probably wont get any commision on fhese dolls maybe if i mention amazon ebay pinyerest or instagram? But its not my favorite one so im thinking about maybe picking somethung else like keto products or that one kiss bra its like a new and better victoria secret bra or even hair products oe car products. Also do I get unlimited websites with u guys when I move uo? I hope so cus I do have alot of ideas. Just tryinf to picture how it would look onnthe website. And also the 10 posts idk reallh whay to put because im already going to be writing about the dolls already.

I can see that your baby niche is something that you are very passionate about. But I am wondering how many other people are. check on ahrefs.com / keyword-generator and see if any keyword come up for that niche. If it looks like there aren't many you may want to think about one of your other niche ideas that may be more common and popular. It is great that you have so many interests! However, when you first start it is important to choose only one niche because it takes a lot of research and time to write posts, grow traffic and then make some money.

Hello thank you for the reply. Im so sorry I didnt get back to you sooner. I was sick for the last 3 days. Anyways my niche is anout reborn dolls but I like to talk about the robotic ones I found. As far as I know there the only company in the world to make them. They have many awards for there art. Reborning is a art. I chose this subject to help mothers or people that have lost a child or cant have a child. Also the elderly love the dolls. It makes them happy and brings a sense of peace. Also these dolls are known to help with anxiety. I will look up the definition tho. I avyually have to start over because my cat spilled water on my pre draft. Thank u for the suggestions. How many websites are we allowed to create? How long have you been making your websites? I was working in the medical field but I love writing specially if its about a passion or something I want to know anout.

I think having a niche thats about reborn dolls will help others that are greiving or cant have a child. Also the elderly really love the dolls. Its so nice to see them smile. I want the world to know its not embarassing to have a passion about reborns. I think a baby is a beautiful thing and the reborns are very like like. In my niche I mention there is a company called baby clon that makes the only rebotic reborns in the world. They have won many rewards for there art. Im planning on getting one myself because I cant have any more children .

I also have some questions regarding the website. When I upgrade to Premium I can register a domain. Thats what I understood. But I am curious to know if there are extra costs for registering a new domain, or if this is included in the premium membership.

And the second question: I want to give the premium membership a try. But Idk how long I can afford paying 50 $/month, obviously depending on how quick I am able to make money from the website(s). I don't want to think about worst case scenarios because I want to start this thing with a clear mindset. BUT if I have to cancel the membership for whatever reason, is the website with my registered domain still available? Or will it be deleted or does it cost any money to "purchase" the domain from WA?

Enjoy your day everyone ☺️

Hi - unless you pay for a yearly subscription to WA, then a .com domain is not included. You would need to purchase it separately at a cost of $13.99 per year.

Once you have purchased your domain, it is yours to keep. If you leave WA at a later date, you can transfer it away from here to another hosting provider.

GeoffreyC1 Premium
If you cancel your membership you will have to move your website to another host.

It will cost you $14 per year.

jghwebbrand Premium
Diane has given you some great information.
Here is a little more which may help you to put the membership thing in perspective.

You are a Free Starter member. You can remain that way forever; If you remain as a Starter Member, after 7 days your access to the Paid Premium program will become very limited. You will still have access to the free training You also get a free subdomain website which expires in 6 months. But access to this community and site support goes away.

For 7 days you have access to the Paid Premium program so you get a feel as to what WA has to offer. Please take a good look around. If you want an additional 30 day access to Paid Premium it costs $19 if you sign up for ii in the first 7 days. Once you sign up for Paid Premium you cannot go back to being a Free Member. Once you are a Paid Premium member it costs $49 per month or $495 a year.

The benefits you get with the Paid Premium are those needed to succeed. The resources include Level 2 - 5 Online Entrepreneur Training (weekly live webinars, guides and tips from the community members and so much more, hosting of 10 websites, unlimited usage of Jaaxy the keyword research tool needed to choose good ranking keywords for post titles, 24 x 7 support (community and Site Support) plus other things.
WHAT HAPPENS After 7 days? You will need to do all the work... using the search bar by clicking on the spyglass you will need to ask your questions in there to see if anyone else has asked them and how they solved them...
or use google to refine the searches...if you use
site:my.wealthyaffiliate.com [topic of question]
you will get all the results related to your question on this site but it will become more difficult but not impossible as others achieve success


Please be diligent in looking at this platform before making your decision.

Wow thank u for the information. I think im barley getting to that part on the lessions . I plan on subscribing . I thought it was 99 a month. Also I cant pay for it right now because my mom did fraud on my credit. Thats another reason im joining to make more income.

jghwebbrand Premium
$99 a month is the Premium Plus membership which is not required to become successful, especially if you do not have the funding. You can always go to Premium Plus later at any time if you choose.

Hi you can register a domain at any time however you are unable host with WA unless you upgrade to Premium, as hosting is covered in your premium subscription to the platform.

Domain names can be purchased at $14 yearly privacy included.

If for some reason you are wanting discontinue, you need arrange alternative hosting for your website before your subscription ceases as you would be locked out the platform, site support back ups are only available for 60 days.

You can never revert back to being a starter.

I also suggest you backup your sites, you can use the AIO WP Migration or Updraft plugins. UpdraftPlus is a premium and highly recommended.

Thank you for the informative answer. I will go Premium shortly before the time runs up ;) Because I really like the help from all community members. Thats what I am missing in so many other pages/programms whatsoever. Often you get stupid answers like "you should know this / just google it and you find the answer" etc." And here everybody is like "go ask your question" and that's the main reason why I want to go for WA.

And I really really hope it will work for me. I just wanted to be clear what happens if I need to cancel the subscription due to job loss or whatever reasons that could happen. I don't know if that is already possible but pausing your subscription is a great way to bypass difficult times without loosing everything you have built up. I mean it is easy to pause all the WA services but Idk if it is possible to pause a website or if I have to move it to another provider when I need to pause.

Thanks Abie, if everything goes well I will stay with you guys. I just wanted to be clear what happens when I can't afford it anymore.

Like I already mentioned in the previous answer, it would be awesome if you can pause the subscription. Last year I lost my job and I was unable to continue a coaching program. Thats why I want to be clear from the beginning.

But fingers crossed that I will be a soon-to-be-successful affiliate website owner ☺️

I did find the following information:
Be sure to back up the contents of your sites to your local machine before you lose access to them. I thought I ready somewhere that WA Site support keeps the website data for 6 months but that may depend upon the domain registration date.

If you get into a situation where you loose your job.

PLEASE contact https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support to find out all of the details and let them know what your plans are.

We do hope you don't loose your job before you become successful here.

When trying to create a website using the "Free" Domain but receive the following error: Please create a support ticket to register a domain. Why would that happen? I do own the actual .com domain but was going to create the free side first before I transferred the domain over. Thank you

Hi, I'm Ash and i'm new to this obviously because i didn't even know this was a thing .
Until i watched a guy on facebook so say make £600,000 in his first year.
Now i'm not saying he's a liar or it was a scam page BUT i did think there may have been a little bit of truth in his video somewhere.
There was no way i had the £1500 he was asking to join his "FREE" training but i thought that's probably why i should. Just not his.
I know when i finish this training it's very unlikely i'll wake up the next day with enough in my account to ditch my 12 hours a day 6 days a week job and it'll probably take ages before i'd be able to
but i am keen and willing to learn and it is the thought of being able to subsidise mine and my wifes income from a few hours on a laptop that has caught my attention and that is why i'm here.
so as i've said i'm new and any advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi &ntmu;& welcome. My honest advice is that this WA is not overnight make money platform and to be more sincere, I really don't believe there s out there anyone who's doing this. Although the internet is shouting loud ohhhh yeah here's your money maker platform, honestly, who scream out loud this, are not a reliable one!
They must full some other people but not me.
Anyway, all I can wish u is many blessings, take the training if you really want to learn so wthing new and with times, as in today times technology is e everything and everywhere.
Here you will learn how to help others throughout honesty.
To be recognised by the big search engines as an authority you ll need a website with few more, lots, articles.
I'm sure you can do as I wasn't sure I couldn't do it and here imwith over 20 article in just 1 website. Still is not enough.
Much love to u&family;

Hi
I'm so happy that you have joined us. It is an excellent decision to do so.
You are correct in saying that everything does take time
This training at Wealthy Affiliate does work. It is NOT a scam but it does take time.

At the minute you have 7 days free where you complete your 10 lessons.
There is no rush to upgrade although after 7 days, if no upgrade, you do lose the option to ask a question or any clarification if things are not clear

However, you are still encouraged to take your own pace to continue the training until you feel it is best to upgrade

Here is the link to start your training if you haven't yet done so This other link is for you to understand the process of how to make money online I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any more clarification or anymore help :)

Hi,

WA is a learning platform that teaches you how to build a successful website for affiliate marketing. You need to read all the information, watch all the videos and complete each task as you are requested to do so.

It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and requires months of consistent work. You are building a genuine online business for your future.

It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work.

For the first seven days you can test drive platform full premium access to see if it fits with your business needs and objectives.

As and when you decide to become a Premium, your first month would be $19 then $49 monthly afterwards until you cancel

Or $49 first month then $99 monthly afterwards for premium plus + tier subscribers.

I would like to build my page on babyclon . Its a website that sells robotic reborns and also regular silicone reborns. They are priced starting at 800 to 5,800. It depends on the doll model and the feauters you are looking for in your dream. Baby. Im planning on getting one with the money I make from here actually. I cant have any more children so this is special to me. Also i was going to download some models of theres. They have 35 models to chose from. And i was wondering do I have to ask permission to advertise there website and how do I get paid from that?

You would need to see if they have an affiliate program.
You can check in google search.

bablycon + affiliate program

To learn all of these details it is important to follow the training lesson by lesson.

Here's the basic concept.
After your website is up, then you will add posts of helpful content to you website about a specific niche so when people search for that niche and your website posts are indexed and ranked they will find your posts in the search results and click to come tp your website. After you have some traffic and content you will apply to an Affiliate program at which time you will receive a tracking id and can use it in the products you choose to display in your niche. When visitors click on your product links and buy you make a profit.
